DIF Capital Partners’ Acquisition of 100% of a 117MW Wind Project in Uruguay

Gómez-Acebo & Pombo advised DIF Capital Partners on the deal.

DIF Capital Partners and ENERCON GmbH have announced that DIF, through its DIF Infrastructure Fund VI, has acquired 100 per cent of the ownership of the 117MW Peralta I/II onshore wind projects in Uruguay.

The project, comprising 50 ENERCON E-92 2.35MW turbines, has been operational since October 2015 and benefits from a 20-year 100MW power purchase agreement with UTE, Uruguay’s state-owned utility. The project will continue to be maintained by ENERCON under a long-term agreement and asset management services will continue to be delivered by SEG-Heliotec. Following the acquisition of the 50MW Cerro Grande project in 2019, this is the second Uruguayan ENERCON project that DIF has acquired.

DIF Capital Partners is a leading global independent fund manager, with €8.5 billion of assets under management across nine closed-end infrastructure funds and several co-investment vehicles.
